Ovation of the Seas Cruise Review by takeout

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Obstructed Ocean View Balcony

Where do you start trying to describe this incredible ship although there a lot of passengers she is a very big vessel and there are a enough spaces and venues to accommodate everyone.

Embarkation was the quickest we have ever had arrived at pier @11:00 on by 11:20 so efficient.

We had an obstructed view balcony cabin on deck 6 port side quite roomy plenty of storage and hanging space and we were looked after extremely well by our wonderful cabin steward Henri.

All of the entertainment venues were well attended and packed out most nights in particular

the Two70 at the rear of the ship absolutely mind blowing venue.

A big shout out to the following bar staff who went above and beyond and are a credit to Royal Caribbean Trystan,Crispin and Allan in the Schooner Bar and Alwin and Marina in one of our favourites The Bolero.

All dining staff throughout the ship amazing as always first class cant do enough for you.

We did our own thing at port stops so cant comment on shore excursions.

To Captain Henrik and his crew thank you all for taking us on this wonderful journey on this fantastic ship.

Would we cruise on this ship again yes in a heartbeat.
